Konami have confirmed that there will be 2 demos for its upcoming Football game PES 2012, both for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
The first demo, available on August 24th, will give players the option of picking one of six teams and their playing styles – Manchester United, AC Milan, FC Porto, S.S.C Napoli, Santos FC, and C.A. Panarol - and pit them against each other in 10-minute matches.
The first demo will be based on a preview build of the game, but the developer wants players to try new features of the game including the Teammate Control elements, Active AI and the Challenge Training elements, where fans can practice the new control systems.
The second demo will be a more polished version of the game and will come mid-september, it will also offer 10-minute matches, but with a different team roster of Tottenham Hotspur, FC Bayern Munich, FC Internazionale Milano, Rangers FC, Club America and Sport Club Internacional.
"We have spoken a lot about the new additions to PES 2012, and now we want users to see it for themselves," explained Jon Murphy, European PES Team Leader. "By releasing a demo for preview purposes, we want people to get in early to try out the Teammate Control elements and to see for themselves how the Active AI works. This will then be followed by a second demo that offers different teams, and a closer approximation of what the final game will play like. We truly value the support and input of our user base – and these demos are so they can see how their help has aided the most ambitious PES to date."
PES 2012 will be released for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC on October 14th - PlayStation 2 and PSP on Oct 28th and for Wii on Nov 4th. 3DS and iPhone dates have yet to be announced.
